Tuncurry Waste Management Centre
Tuncurry Waste Management Centre was established in 1976 and has an approximate remaining lifespan of 12 months. A new transfer station will be built on the site, where all waste material will be transported to Great Lakes (Minimbah) Landfill for disposal. The existing Material Recovery Facility (MRF) has since been replaced with a new state of the art material recovery facility. Recyclable material collected from your kerbside collection is delivered to this facility where it undergoes a sort / separation process before the products are baled and sent to market.
